EPIC STYLE - My rydes are full of variety. I enjoy sprints, climbs and a mix of turns on the bike. I like to keep the my style real and engaging. I encourage everyone in class to push outside their comfort zone, just enough to be proud.
My TRX and Triple Sweat classes are challenging and focus on a full body workout. I always give modifications, so my classes are great for all levels of fitness.
EPIC PLAYLIST - Music ranges from alternative rock to today's top hits. Music drives my rydes. It empowers my sprints and gives purpose to my climbs. Some of my favorite bands to jam to are John Butler Trio, Lady Gaga, Calvin Harris, Flo Rida, Metallica, Muse, Moby, Def Leppard and Imagine Dragons. I try to throw a song in from each genre to make everyone smile.
EPIC STYLE - I try my hardest to offer challenging classes each and every time. My goal is to teach in a way that works for both the beginner Ryder to the most advanced Ryder. I like to push the pace and incorporate longer sprints or tempo paced intervals. Not only does it make us faster for indoor and outdoor riding, but it also burns a lot of calories and greatly increases our fitness levels. I love to utlilize the movement of the bikes a couple times in each class. There's nothing better than leaning into a turn outdoors and it's magic when that feeling clicks on the RealRyder bikes.
EPIC PLAYLIST - I love finding unique songs I don't think any other instructor would have. I like to incorporate live versions of music performed at Red Rocks or other Colorado venues. Every now and then, one hardworking member walks out the door with a copy of the night's music. My epic playlist includes "I Will Wait" (Mumford & Sons), "Texas Ride Song" (Bodeans), "Brighter Than Gold" (The Cat Empire), "300 Violin Orchestra" (Jorge Quintero), "All At Once" (The Airborne Toxic Event), "2000 Watts" (Michael Jackson) and "Ocean" (John Butler Trio).
EPIC STYLEI race mountain bikes so I bring that kind of high intensity to each class. I like plenty of intervals using sprint and hill combinations. Know that you'll be breathless in my class quite often. My classes prepare you for the local mountain bike treks or the long weekend road ride with your friends. Either way, you'll be leading the pack.
EPIC PLAYLISTI have a variety of music in my class. One song will be hip-hop, the next classic rock, then I'll throw in a rap song. I aim to keep my music super motivating for the entire workout. I'll make sure you're having fun and working at your personal best at the same time; a great way to achieve your fitness goals.
My TRX class is a fun, total body workout catering to all fitness levels. I place an emphasis on form and function and modifications are always presented. Designed to flow, we'll do minimal rest as we let one muscle group recover and work another. This constant movement burns a great deal of calories and adds non-stop variety.
EPIC PLAYLISTI enjoy all kinds of music! I always choose music that is up tempo and has a good beat.
EPIC STYLE - I like to move around on the bike and use a variety of ryding positions. Every class is unique and includes a lot of variety. I love race mode! I feel the RealRyders can incorporate a whole new level of core control so I utilize the movement often.
EPIC PLAYLIST - I like happy, fun music that makes people smile and rock out! I will match hill climbs to slower paced songs and sprints with a blasting, fast-paced song. My favorite artists include Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, The Black Keys, Kesha, Pitbull, Adele, Pink, Madonna, Beegees and Prince.

EPIC STYLE - I teach structured and well-organized classes at an intensity to improve performance, fitness, speed, stamina and strength. I don't actively engage turns on the RealRyders, but the natural movement compliments my workouts. EPIC PLAYLIST - The best rock and roll of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Beatles, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Doobie Brothers and The Doors make the list.
EPIC STYLEWhether a seasoned ryder or a newbie, my goal is to push every member to work harder than they thought they could. Through intervals, long climbs, heavy hill sprints, and lots of time out of the saddle, be prepared to regret coming to class and thanking yourself that you did, all at the same time. I coach my ryders using bootcamp style cueing, motivating music, and good old fashioned humor. My class brings an inspiring group of men and women that are gluttons for punishment and love having their "tails kicked"; I promise we are the best "happy hour" crew around!
EPIC PLAYLISTI use music that forces you to move and like to play it loudly; you'll know the majority of songs I use in my classes (but can't really sing along because you have to save your oxygen :P ) as I generally pull from the top 40 list and use some of the best songs from the 90s and 2000s. I've been told I have some of the best music around, so check out one of my classes to see if you agree! My classes feature: Kanye West, Skrillex, Jon Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Coldplay, The Black Keys, David Guetta, The Crystal Method, Pitbull, Muse, Cold War Kids, and Britney Spears, just to name a few!
EPIC STYLEMy TRX class is a good, solid workout for all fitness levels. Classes focus on movements to enhance strength, balance and flexibility; however I incorporate cardio. into each 45 minute class. I will show you modifications that will allow you to achieve the most from your workout, which makes it appealing for both those just starting TRX and those looking for more of a challenge.
EPIC PLAYLISTI love old school hip hop, indie rock remixes and upbeat dance and pop songs. Some artists on my playlist include the Black Keys, Lady Gaga, Fatboy Slim and the Dandy Warhols.
EPIC STYLE - I always encourage my Ryders to give their best effort and teach in adherence to the Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) scale. I usually alternate between steady state, endurance climbs, intervals and wind sprints so there's balance of both aerobic and anaerobic training.
EPIC PLAYLIST - I gravitate toward high energy sounds with a consistent, driven beat. European house and electronic dance music are solid choices for each class. Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, DJ Tiesto, Kaskade, Britney, Usher, Lady Gaga and Maroon 5 top the list.
EPIC STYLEI always bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to my classes. I will motivate you as well you push through a tough workout. My classes offer the right mix of intensity and fun and you won't even realize how hard you are working!

Wise Mountain, Frisco, CO.
This Colorado bike trail offers breathtaking scenery and a wonderful ride through 24.8 total looping miles. This is a moderate difficulty trail lasting at most four hours or less. The best time to ride this trail is during July through October for the best riding experience possible.
Keep the Allen wrench that comes with the cleats or purchase one that fits. Cleats work themselves loose over time and this will prevent you from getting a clean release from the pedal. Make it a habit to tighten the cleat before each workout.
